SPACEY’S SCENES TO BE RE­FILMED IN ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD

National Post (Latest Edition) - - POST MOVIES -

In a highly un­usual move, direc­tor Ri­d­ley Scott de­cided Wed­nes­day to re­move Kevin Spacey, pic­tured, from a fin­ished movie, All the Money in the World, and re­film scenes with a sub­sti­tute ac­tor. It will be a race against time: Scott promised Sony Pic­tures En­ter­tain­ment that the al­tered film, which will now star Christo­pher Plum­mer in Spacey’s role as the reclu­sive oil ty- coon J. Paul Getty, will be ready in time for a sched­uled re­lease Dec. 22. Hol­ly­wood has been dis­tanc­ing it­self from Spacey af­ter al­le­ga­tions from more than a dozen men that Spacey sex­u­ally ha­rassed, groped or as­saulted them. The film dra­ma­tizes the re­fusal of Getty in the 1970s to pay a ran­som for his grand­son. It stars Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Wil­liams.
